Tedford’s condition has not improved following his return to the team in Week 2. With the Bucs off to an 0-3 start, it is best for all parties at this time that he gets his health back in order.

In addition, the offense took a hit this past Thursday, as Josh McCown was injured. The free agent signee is expected to miss several weeks, giving the reigns back to signal-caller Mike Glennon.

Glennon, who the team had as their starting quarterback last season, will be the starter moving forward. He is an improve over McCown, as the veteran is strictly a pocket passer in his old age these days.

Glennon, on the other hand, is able to run out of the pocket when things get out of hand. Plus, he played fairly well in the 56-14 dismantling to the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday Night Football just days ago.
